CAS Driver – Serial – CAS-2700-03 – Veeder TCP Gateway


CAS-2700-03

Veeder TCP – TLS 300, 350, 450

Modbus (RTU and TCP) and BACnet and HTML

Gateway

 

 

Description

 

The Veeder TCP Driver allows the Gateway to poll Veeder TLS Panel’s for status, real time and configuration data. Thus the driver can be used to read Tank Inventory, System Status, Tank Alarms, Sensor Alarms and more .

 

The Veeder Gateway serves data from a TLS panel as Modbus, BACnet or Web data.  The gateway supports all these options simultaneously. Use the data you want and ignore the other.

 

The Gateway connects to the TLS Panel, reads data and stores it internally. When a remote system requests data, this data is served in a form that is appropriate to the protocol.  In the event that the connection to the TLS Panel is lost, or data cannot be read, the gateway can signal this to the remote data client.

 

The gateway requires minimal configuration and can be considered a plug and play component of a system, in that it is ready to operate out of the box with the default configuration.

 

The driver is a TCP driver using an Ethernet cable to connect between the Gateway and the TLS Panel. The Panel must have a suitable Ethernet card installed.

Connection Configuration

 

 

 

Driver Operation

 

The driver can be configured to execute any of the commands in the ‘supported function’ list. The data sent is stored internally in the Gateway and is made available to other protocols (Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, BACnet IP and HTML) .

 

The frequency with each data point is read is configurable. The driver retries on errors or timeouts. If the data cannot be read then after some configurable time it is marked as out of service.

 

The driver reports operating stats and issues on a web page, maintains a log that can be uploaded by HTTP or ftp.

 

Configuration

 

Via Web Page. Configure IP settings, Node ID’s, Baud Rate and other parameters.

 

Users are able to select

Up to 10 Tanks – specify the number and name of each

Up to 10 Sensors – specify the number and name of each

Up to 1 Vacuum Sensor – specify the number and name of each

 

The names are used to form the names of the BACnet objects and populate the web page showing current values.

 

Use can specify

ModbusTCP: Node_ID

ModbusRTU: Node_ID, baud, parity, data lengh, stop nits

BACnet: Device instance number, device name.

 

Communications functions

 

Supported functions.

Not all Veeder communication functions are supported. The following functions are supported by the Web based configuration. Additional functions are supported but must be configured manually.

COMMAND

 

101

System Status Report

201

In-Tank Inventory Report

202

In-Tank Delivery Report

203

In-Tank Leak Detect Report

B38

Vacuum Sensor Report

 

The driver will not send the next command until a response has been received from the previous or until a timeout has expired.

Support

 

This driver was developed by Chipkin Automation Systems (CAS). CAS are proud to provide support for the driver. For support please callCASat (866) 383-1657.
